I recently bought a 1992 525i Touring and there appears to be some
things not quite right about the sunroof.
#1: when the front sunroof is open, I can see what looks to be an
insulating pad resting loosely between the exterior and interior parts
of the sunroof:
Is this something that has come loose, or is it something a previous
owner may have installed themselves?
#2: while the front sunroof panel opens fully, the rear sunroof panel
doesn't come forward as far as I would expect. Does this picture look
#3: during the exercise of opening both roofs, I ended up with a long
mark on the cabin ceiling about 3 cm from the sunroof split. Is there
any advice to be given on how to keep this from happening again? (the
lower line in the photo is the seam between the panels; the upper line
is a dirty mark).
Overall, the opening of the sunroof is sluggish--I don't know whether
it is because of the motors showing their age or possible the
resistance of the loose pad.
Any suggestions or advice before I go to have this repaired would be
